Kingdom Fresh Farms, a fresh produce grower and marketer in the US specialising in a year-round supply of Mexico-grown tomatoes, has announced that its tomatoes have been non-GMO Project Verified.
As a result, consumers will be able to find Kingdom Fresh Farms tomatoes on store shelves with the promise that they have remained non-genetically modified.
“This is very exciting for us” says Guillermo Martinez, general manger at Kingdom Fresh Farms. “We choose to get our products Non-GMO Project Verified, because we respect the consumer’s right to know what is in the food they are eating and it is a way of affirming our commitment to produce fresh and healthy tomatoes and vegetables."
The Non-GMO Project is the only entity in North America that offers third-party verification and labeling for products made according to rigorous best practices for GMO avoidance, and the associated seal is the most trusted sign that a product is produced through best practices for GMO avoidance.
